Mike Kim tackles an intense topic that is clearly important to him, and explains why it should be important to you as well. Although I expected a bit more of his writing, especially with such an amazingly tough topic as the plight of North Korean refugees, I can't fault Kim too much. His book shines a light on the people of North Korea, and not the government, making sure that the world knows that these courageous people need our help.

If you're looking for 5 star writing, look elsewhere. But if you're looking for an important topic that I'd imagine few Americans know about (I know I was in the dark!), pick Kim's book up and educate yourself.
